Red Bull BC One heads to Europe in November for World Final showdown.
Amsterdam Westergasfabriek will provide the stage for the world’s best B-Boys to battle it out one-on-one again at the 14th edition of Red Bull BC One on November 4.
Netherlands is home to celebrated crews such as HustleKidz and The Ruggeds as well as 2014 BC One winner Menno – a member of the Red Bull BC One All Stars.
It will be a long 2017 journey, though, for whoever wants to emulate reigning champion Issei after he wowed his home crowd in Nagoya, Japan.
The 19-year-old fought off two-time winner Hong 10 to capture his first BC One title in 2016 after years of regional Japanese and Asian Pacific finals.
This time around, BC One hopefuls go head-to-head in over 35 qualifying cyphers and six camps to determine who makes the Amsterdam cut.
The three-day camps will be held in Spain, Russia, France, Turkey, Japan and Netherlands, reflecting the local creative landscape with lectures, workshops, art exhibitions, club nights and battles.
All the winners will earn the chance to compete for the last open spot, just days before the hugely anticipated World Final gets broadcast to the world.
Leony was one of 38 B-Boys from 35 countries competing at the 2016 Last Chance Cypher, the Brazilian winning through to the World Final.
After the amazing routines displayed in Japan, 2017 Red Bull BC One promises to be the best yet with the planet’s most talented B-Boys feeding off the passionate Dutch crowd to discover the next champion.
